How to make healthy choices a habit
As is stocking up on green and purple food. Maybe you’ve been denying yourself cake and snacks. Perhaps you’ve been juicing, calorie counting. Even weighing out your portion sizes or subjecting yourself to a punishing exercise regime. Is any of this sounding familiar?
Every morning starts out as a ‘good day’, doesn’t it? It’s like you’ve wiped the slate clean. Forgiven yourself yesterday’s ‘sins’. And you’re starting anew with willpower aplenty. Come evening, you’ve fallen back into your old ways. Whether that’s emotional eating, overindulging or mindlessly reaching for the biscuit tin. I know I’m not the only one who can relate to this soul-destroying cycle of motivation, deprivation. Closely followed by guilt.
But here’s the thing. Legend has it that it takes 21 days to change a habit. In reality, it’s far more complicated than that. If you want different results, you have to try different approaches. And to steer yourself away from a habit you’ve ingrained over the course of your life takes training your brain to think differently. It’s the first step towards breaking a pattern that no longer serves you. And the secret to a healthy and mindful relationship with food.
